Learn about country's crucial role in World War II at Lascaris War Rooms, where you'll explore the historic complex of rooms and tunnels from which the defense of Malta was conducted. Located 46 m (150 ft) below the Upper Barraca Gardens, this was the site where some of the most famous battles of the Mediterranean were planned. With the end of WWII, the complex became the headquarters of the Royal Navy's Mediterranean Fleet and then a strategic communication center for NATO. Choose between a tour guide or an audio guide, both of which will explain the events that took place here. Learn about the German bombardment of the islands, Malta's critical role in defending North Africa, and why the nation was awarded the George Cross for bravery.

Interesting history brought to life in the place where the War finally began to go well for the Allies. It was here that the invasion of Sicily was planned and directed. Very informative tour. Highly recommended.
Well kept premises with an experience that dates back to the world war era. It could be better if there is an interactive session and live demo of what used to happen within the command centre
